- Finnick Group, Design And Print Solutions Novices' Handicap Hurdle (Class 4)
- 2m 2f 148y, Good to Soft (Soft in places)
- 11 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Seven race maiden registered a career best effort when runner-up over an extended 2m1f at Fontwell (good) in March. Absent since and is a notable runner on seasonal debut despite a 4lb rise in the weights.
Maiden after five starts but placed on last two outings including when runner-up on handicap debut over an extended 2m2f at Newton Abbot (good) last month. One to note despite a 4lb rise in the weights.
Nine race maiden was beaten 18L when third of five in a novice hurdle over an extended 2m3f at Bangor (good) on second start since joining this stable. Top jockey booked to ride.
Beaten 2L when runner-up in a 2m novice hurdle at Hereford (good) on Rules debut last November. Changed stables since finishing 28L fourth over an extended 1m7f at Wincanton (good) two months later.
Raised 13lb for winning by 13L in a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Worcester (good) in August on his most recent hurdles start. Visor worn for the first time that day retained when well beaten at a big price on the Flat subsequently.
Failed to figure when beaten 64L in finishing last of ten on his first start since wind surgery and handicap debut at Worcester (2m, soft) recently. Hails from a top yard and is not written off just yet.
Good second in a 2m novice hurdle at Ffos Las (good) in June but struggled when 37L last of seven on handicap debut at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good-to-soft) subsequently. Worth a check in the market racing off a 6lb lower mark.
Three time winner over fences in France in 2018 but has struggled since joining this stable including when last of six finishers over 2m4f at Huntingdon (good) last time out on first start since wind surgery. Probably best watched back over hurdles.
Winner on the Flat and placed third in a 2m1f novice hurdle on good ground in June 2018. In decent form on the Flat for this stable of late and is making his handicap debut and first hurdles start in over 12 months.
17 race maiden recorded a fair effort in finishing 24L fourth in a handicap hurdle over an extended 1m7f at Southwell (good) in April. Absent since and likely more needed if he's to take this event.
Ten race maiden was pulled up in first time cheekpieces (absent here) in a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Uttoxeter (good) at the end of June. Others make more appeal on return from a break.
